Raining tears of godly sorrow at the start,
Like an alabaster box poured out in praise,
Founts of repentance spring from her sinning heart.
Her silent pledge to reverse from Evil’s ways,
Is fragrance rising up to God’s mercy seat,
Such sweet aroma flares from her soul ablaze.
She casts all her sins and burdens at Christ’s feet,
Longing to be rescued from Destruction’s pit,
To stand upon the Rock with all joy replete.
God’s touch alone will gratify her spirit,
No longer tormented like the restless sea,
With nothing, save her very life, to commit.
Without condemnation, He answers her plea:
“Beloved, go in peace, thy faith has saved thee.”
